    thanks for the video!

    why do you tying the knots of the mains at b9 and not on b8?
    and why you don't use prestretch?
    and only for interest: how many rackets are you stringing in a week/month?

    i see how you pull the last two mains. looks not very good :)
    i see a "professional" stringer, which pull the last two mains with only one pull at b10. i think the tension loss on the last main (b12) is insignificant for the tension at the sweet point... i'm using my static clamps for the last main (b12)...

    Are you not tempted to turn the double beeps off? They got on my waps pretty much from the get-go!

    tie off. my theory is always to keep the knots away from the sweetspot.

    pre-stretch is ON on the WISE. i don't do manual pre-stretch. that takes up too much time.

    my volume varies. sometimes i get 20-30 rackets a month, sometime none!

    last 2 mains. yes. in order to do the Yonex loop back pattern, i have no choice with a flying clamp only machine i am afraid.

    not gonna comment too much on the tension loss as that's the topic of the Contest going on right now. ;)

    Huh, you would think that would be in the manual somewhere. Wonder if there are any other undocumented features.

    While we're in fantasy land, the WISE should be a featureless black box with one giant button labelled "STRING". And it should run on Gundam music.

    Re the vid: I like the bit at about 17:50 where you spend 10 seconds searching for the pliers that are resting on the string bed. Glad i'm not the only one who does things like that :eek:

    That's pretty funny! I do that at least once a week with my string mover!

    cursed. again!!!

    got a nice looking Yonex Isometric 900SS from a client. lovely racket that used to be my favorite. so i figured i will video tape the process to share with everyone.

    started stringing, was going really fast. finished the job in a record 18 mins.

    but the stupid camera ran out of space in the middle. :mad: :mad: :mad:
